Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words - don't need more songs to cry to .ep [cnv 14]


Published March 28, 2005


The title of Thomas Ekelund's outing on Con-v ( his first online release in four years! ) is just a possible frame of reference for what sounds like an (albeit wholly deconstructed) guitar which initiates the work. (Is there a more archetypical songsters instrument than the guitar imaginable?) But what is heard is not another one of THOSE songs: this dirge of rusty, acidic spilling out of dead words sounds like fate itself (sonically personified as a primordial entity out of Lovecraft's Ctulhu-cyclus) crying out. This might be reckoned as 'blues' - only that any affective coloring can not be straightforwardly ascertained on this 'meta-physical' level; nor, for that matter, can any tears. [Set to auto-repeat, the cosmic leakage is in turn plumbed, only for the vessel to be punctured anew - again, and again, and again...]

Reviewer: LAJ - - April 10, 2006
Subject: Hostile Deconstructed Guitar and Drones
This is a 19-minute beatless foray into a slowly evolving hostile world of deconstructed guitar scrapings, dense textures of undulating static, chaotic noise, and dark, resonating drones. An initial layer of muted guitar scrapings is gradually submerged within rolling waves of angry ambient noise that create an increasingly threatening atmosphere before subsiding into a brief culminating moment of pitiful minimal noise. -LAJ-
